  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 jar (26 to 30 ounces) spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 carton (15 ounces) ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 10 uncooked lasagna noodles
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Cooking:

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into small crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings; season with salt. Stir in spaghetti sauce, tomatoes and red pepper.

Top with remaining noodles in single layer; press into sauce. Top with remaining beef sauce.
